Leading Malayalam actor Dulquer Salmaan's next big venture, the highly-anticipated Telugu film, Sita Ramam, now has a release date. The upcoming film, an epic period love story set in the year 1964, directed by Hanu Raghavapudi of Padi Padi Leche Manasu (Sharwanand and Sai Pallavi-starrer) fame, will be coming to theatres worldwide on August 5, the blockbuster South Indian actor announced on social media on Wednesday. Dulquer, who will be seen sharing screen space with popular Bollywood actress Mrunal Thakur and youth sensation Rashmika Mandanna in Sita Ramam, shared the film's release date motion poster on Twitter and wrote, "A love letter from the pages of history delivering soon to theatres near you…  #SitaRamam Worldwide Release On 𝐀𝐮𝐠 𝟓𝐭𝐡, 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟐 ♥️".

Sita Ramam, produced under the Swapna Cinema banner, is being presented by Vyjayanthi Movies, best known in recent years for their Mahanati, which earned Keerthy Suresh the National Award for Best Actress. Expectations for the period romance film have been high ever since the project was announced and will also show Dulquer in a Telugu-speaking role once again after Mahanati in 2018. Dulquer will be playing the role of Lieutenant Ram, while Mrunal is essaying the character Sita, followed by Rashmika as Afreen, who comes to their help in the quest for their love. 

Post the stellar reception to the film's teaser a while back, all sights are now set on the Sita Ramam official trailer, which is expected to be released in the days ahead as promotions will soon be kicking off now that the release date has been announced. The casting of Dulquer alongside Mrunal and Rashmika is an interesting mix and fans look forward to the trio delivering memorable performances. Sita Ramam has a highly talented technical team featuring the likes of cinematographers PS Vinod and Shreyaas Krishna, followed by editor Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao, while Hanu Raghavapudi has himself penned the dialogues with Jay Krishna and Raj Kumar Kandamudi.
